    Gale force winds hit the Lower Hunter
    Monday, 20 August 2001

    Gale force winds across the lower Hunter have caused minor damages in the last couple of days. The winds were averaging at 40kts at times with gusts over 50kts in the Maitland/Cessnock area on Saturday morning. The winds were a result of passing cold fronts, which also affected parts of Southern NSW and Victoria. Maximum wind gusts were recorded at 80kts in some places of Victoria and 55kts in the Illawarra and the South Coast of NSW. A maximum wind gust was recorded at Morpeth of 57kts on Saturday. The winds have been the strongest since June, 1998.
